    Anybody who was expecting Dick Tracy will have to settle for Fearless Fosdick . . .

    I thought Fosdick was at the Home for Defective Detectives.

    Dick Tracy isn’t retired. Fearless Fosdick, who was Al Capp’s satire of Tracy, is. By the way, who are the other characters in today’s strip?

    From left to right: Pa from Cliff Sterrett’s “Polly and Her Pals,” Happy Hooligan by Frederick B. Opper, Pepsi and Pete (marketing characters for the soft drink), Pottsy by Jay Irving, and Fearless Fosdick from Al Capp’s “Li’l Abner.” I was hoping Pottsy might show up this week!

    The irony is that the brooch probably is right where it fell — when Maggie dropped it in reaction to Smokey Stover’s entrance.

    Read back. I predicted Fearless Fosdick.

    I well remember Potsy, the hapless cop who appeared on Sundays in the New York Daily News!

    Could he have been the inspiration for the “Potsie” character played by Anson Williams on “Happy Days”?

    These are Cartoon Cops. No movie cops allowed.

    @Stevero

    I think the guy with the odd looking little brown hat on his head may be Happy Hooligan.
